Rosario Del Rey and Rosario Ortega


Bullying prevalence has been studied in many places in the world, however mainly in
developed countries. Therefore, investigations are limited when exploring the phenomenon
in poor and developing countries populations, in which the violence problems are even
more prominent. Consequently, we consider of special relevance studying bullying in a
poor country such is Nicaragua. In this article, we present the results of an investigation
developed with a representative sample of 2,813 secondary students in Managua and its
metropolitan area (Nicaragua), showing the bullying prevalence, the coexistence with
other forms of violence and the relation to age and sex of the students.

Key words:

Violence, bullying, prevalence, Nicaragua, poor countries
